    I figured they'd be doing something like this soon. I'm diggin' the idea of this, I like that it's pretty small and can be controlled via MIDI or one of the Fractal pedals, which is probably how I'd run it in a live setting. There's too much stuff that's going to take priority over an AxeFX for the next year, but this can be reasoned in quite well!

    I mean, they were sold out everywhere for quite some time after launch. I bought one with a 20% off coupon; hard to argue with that pricepoint and size (though I wouldn't mind grabbing a modular switch at some point because 3 switches is doable but not ideal).

    At that price, I am all over that waitlist. I love the fun and having the tactile-ness of tweaking a real amp and pedals, but this will obviously sound amazing and potentially be so much more practical.

    Seem to be, yeah. regardless, FAS needed to move forward with that pricepoint ($999-$1500) because the AX8, as good as it is, was getting stale. Also missing features people have been asking for, like headphone jack, USB audio, etc.

    There is a HUGE Market that this Companies seem to almost ignore. The dude at home with no pretensions of even having a Band but that likes to have gadgets.

    Im part of those "dudes" and I can spend money if I think its worth it. Heck some newly arrived VST's are selling for 120 bucks and they only do one Amp and you still need a Laptop/Desktop and an Audio Interface.

    Also its a matter of time until all of this will run perfectly well on a mid level consumer laptop. Wont take that long so its better to be part and leader of the pack now before its too late.

    Headrush just released a mini version of their modeler, and Line 6 has had the HX FX and HX Stomp for awhile now. Boss doesn't do one, but no one really seems to care about their amp modeling these days. Hell even Mooer released something like this before any of them.

    Also going by what was said in the Fractal forums, this'll pretty much be an AX8 2.0. Same processing power, single amp, not as many effects as the Axe 3.

    The one-amp thing is a downer. I'd rather throw this on a board with a few pedals doing specific sounds and retain the processing power to run two amps at once. Not a huge deal breaker as the only person that gives a shit about running two amps in a live setting is the guy that programmed them.
